About me

Thanks for looking at my profile, by coming onto the counselling directory - you've taken the first and biggest step - a great start.

I work in both private practice across a couple of sites and also in the voluntary sector with various charities based across the East Midlands. So far, my work has focused on various issues, but I've mainly specialised in the following: relationships, stress, anxiety rated concerns, panic attacks, all forms of abuse, including sexual, mental and domestic, bereavement and terminal illness.ŵ

As well as supporting those with personal issues, I have a keen interest in working with people with work related stress and anxiety concerns. Many of us feel we have to 'just get on with' the pressures that are put on us in the workplace (and sometimes pressures we put on ourselves), with stress accounting for 37%* of work related ill health, learning to cope with those pressures, means a healthier home and working life.

I have experience in face to face, online and telephone counselling, all of which have their place and ultimately its a personal preference.

I am a registered member of BACP.

Training, qualifications & experience

After 20+ years of experiencing various roles in a large corporate organisation, I commenced training on a part time basis in 2009 and qualified in 2013.

I have worked in various charities supporting individuals with a range of different issues. I have worked for the Coping with Cancer, Sure Start, a domestic/sexual violence counselling service and an online charity that provides short and long term counselling to both men and women with a wide range of issues.

I am an associate of Judith Sullivan & Associates and predominantly offer counselling & psychotherapy from my home office near Syston/Sileby LE14.

Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (QCF).

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
